I’m taking three of them a day since 3 August and have felt a little nauseous but only on and off and in the last couple of days. Sorry to hear that you’re not feeling great on them. Hopefully the blood tests will shed some light!

No problems for me, although what I’ve learned from this forum is that the meds affect people so differently! Is the blood test tomorrow? Hope it’s ok x

A lot of side effects for me, mainly headaches and cramps! I started on 2 a day but then they increased it to 3 a day. Blood test showed progesterone level of around 40.

Hello,

Good luck with your journey, I felt really sick and actually ended up with hyperemisis it wasn’t the whole pregnancy it was under control after about 12/13 weeks so I hope your feeling sick is a big positive XX

Hello,

For the first week on cyclogest I felt so sick and dizzy. It seemed to calm down as my body got used to them though x

Hiya,

I had really painful cramps on day 1. It's 3rd day today and is much better but far from perfect yet.

Good luck with your blood tests🤞🍀

I should have said that I also have had some stomach cramps, but again they have been on and off. I’ve not had any severe symptoms that have concerned me enough to go to the clinic. I hope that your sickness is easing. Any update on your bloods? I have no idea what is the ideal level of progesterone unfortunately - sorry! X

Nausea continues. Horrible having these fake pregnancy symptoms. Had progesterone bloods done this morning, but got to the clinic 1 hour late cos of a nasty crash on a motorway, so they said I might not get results today x
